HALF TIME ROUND-UP

It is fair to say despite fielding a youthful side, it is indeed the hosts that have dominated possession. However, for all their possession the Blues have lacked the cutting edge in the final third with the Cherries defending well at the back.

Pep Guardiola may have to dip into his more experienced pool from the bench if he wants to win this one.

The Last Time

The last time these two locked horns came just two months ago as the Blues edged past the Cherries 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium. Check out the highlights here.

16:11a month ago

Kelly Expecting Tough Test

Bournemouth defender, Lloyd Kelly is expecting a tough test for his side this evening. In a interview with the club website he said:

“Manchester City are the holders and we know it’s going to be a tough game. We played them twice last season and know what they’re about.

“The away game post-lockdown was a tight affair. We are going to have to take our A-game and make sure we’re right on it because we know the quality they have."

Touchdown

The visitors have arrived in Manchester ahead of tonight's clash! 

16:02a month ago

Kings of the Carabao

It is fair to say that no one has dominated this competition like City in recent years. As well as winning three titles on the bounce, the Blues have won the League Cup five times in the past seven years?

Can Guardiola's side make it six in eight and four on the bounce?

Debut for Delap?

With Pep Guardiola looking to play a youthful side this evening, one man who has been predicted to be given a City debut is 17-year-old Liam Delap.

Delap proved a sensation in the club's under 18 side last year and has thus been training with the first team for the upcoming campaign, so it would be no surprise to see his name on the teamsheet come 7pm.

City Provide Virtual Programme

Despite supporters still not being allowed into the Etihad, fans are still able to enjoy the official matchday programme from the comfort of their own home after the home side have produced a free digital copy.
15:37a month ago

Ake Faces Old Friends

New Manchester City man, Nathan Ake will face off against his former side for the first time this evening. The game will be the Dutchman's first home game for the Blues and there is no doubt he'll be hoping for a change in his past Etihad fortunes as he previous two appearances in Manchester for Bournemouth were a 3-1 and 4-0 defeat!
